We were caught on a rainy day in the gardens but had beautiful areas to see none the less. Fun to see the iconic sail boat pond

A beautiful setting with a palace fountains, lake, colorful flowers and trees, sculptures. Full of life specially the shiny days you will see Parisians sunbathing, reading, having coffee or lunch at the cafes or even visiting the museum for an excibition. Even better with a moody weather it's beauty is impeccable.

A great spot on a sunny day with some interesting sights. There are heaps of seats around the big ponds to sit and eat your lunch. Combine with a trip to Cluny Museum (Moden Age) and/or the Pantheon. There is a restaurant but it is in the shade.

From the beautiful, stately Luxembourg Palace to the perfectly manicured plants and the toy sailboats on the central pond, it's an idyllic Parisian park that shouldn't be missed. Loved it! Lots of locals and tourists picnic'ing and just lounging about.

Went to see the Medici Fountain, which was spectacular and worth a visit by itself. Found a park bench on a chilly March day that sat over a giant vent that discharged warm air. Took some time to watch Paris life go by. Great people-watching. The decades old tradition of kids sailing old-school wood-and-fabric sailboats in the large pool was... More

If you happen to have a day to spend just sitting and enjoying a picnic, this is the place to do it. There's a central area with statues etc. that divides into walkways into many directions and inbetween these walkways there are lawns and rows of trees catering for the wildlife - birds and insects. All flowers & trees are... More

Great gardens, my favorite in the city. Nice to relax in. In the summer there are free concerts at the gazebo. Beautifully maintained.

A relaxing spot in the middle of a city, as many others in Paris. It was pretty on a rainy day so it must be even lovlier in the sun. Great for picnics.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
